Adeyemi 'favours a move to the Bundesliga' despite Liverpool interest

In-demand Red Bull Salzburg starlet Karim Adeyemi ‘favours a move to the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich, Dortmund and RB Leipzig all interested’ – despite Liverpool ‘also making an enquiry’ for the striker

  • Karim Adeyemi is enjoying a superb season at Salzburg, having scored 11 goals 
  • The young in-form forward is wanted by a number of elite clubs across Europe 
  • According to reports, Adeyemi would prefer to join a side in the Bundesliga next 
  • Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig are all said to be keen on him
  • Liverpool were also touted with a swoop and have reportedly made an enquiry 

In-demand Red Bull Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi would prefer a move to the Bundesliga despite interest from Liverpool, according to reports.

Adeyemi, 19, is one of the most sought after young talents in world football after the starlet’s superb start to the season, in which he has already scored 11 goals.

As a result, it is likely that he will be on the move next summer and, as claimed by Sky Germany, Adeyemi has already mapped out the direction his career will take.

In their report, they say that the forward has his heart set on a return to his homeland, with three of the biggest clubs there interested in signing him.

It is believed that Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig have already made contact with his camp, and that figures have been discussed, too.

A fee of around €30million (£25.5m) to €40million (£34m) would be enough to secure his services.

But despite his preference, Adeyemi is also wanted by Liverpool. The same source claims that the Anfield club have recently also made advances.

Liverpool were touted to make a swoop for the forward but now look set to be disappointed

This comes after Bild, another publication in Adeyemi’s country of birth, also said that Liverpool have ‘joined the race’ to tie down the prodigy.

They look set to be disappointed, however, with all the current indications pointing towards him making the switch to one of the Bundesliga trio. 

It has not been ruled out that Adeyemi then chooses to move further abroad, though, leaving the door firmly open for Liverpool to then pounce.

Adeyemi has shot into stardom after taking up the mantle of being Salzburg’s first-choice striker, filling the void left behind by Erling Haaland and Patson Daka.

His performances at club level have also been noticed by the national team, with Hansi Flick handing him his debut at international level against Armenia.

True to form, Adeyemi scored in the 6-0 win, another sign of his limitless potential. 

He initially joined Salzburg from Unterhaching for just £2.5m in 2018, and it set to bank his current team a hefty profit when he eventually moves on. 

Manfred Sachwable, former president of Unterhaching, revealed that clubs in England showed interest in him even when he was aged just 16. 

His superb form saw him handed his debut for Germany against Armenia, and he even scored

He told Goal: ‘When he was 16, some clubs from England wanted to sign him. 

‘For example, some scouts from Chelsea came, but I don’t know if that would have worked out.

‘You should never take two steps at once. Salzburg is a good station for him, but also a club that doesn’t put any obstacles in the way of young players with suitable offers.

‘If he continues like this, I would say it will be interesting from the spring.’
